FEBRUARY 7 – TEAMWORK

2/7 1 Corinthians 12:12-21
The human body has many parts, but the many parts make up only one body. So it is with the body of Christ. 13 Some of us are Jews, some are Gentiles, some are slaves, and some are free. But we have all been baptized into Christ’s body by one Spirit, and we have all received the same Spirit. 14 Yes, the body has many different parts, not just one part. 15 If the foot says, “I am not a part of the body because I am not a hand,” that does not make it any less a part of the body. 16 And if the ear says, “I am not part of the body because I am only an ear and not an eye,” would that make it any less a part of the body? 17 Suppose the whole body were an eye — then how would you hear? Or if your whole body were just one big ear, how could you smell anything? 18 But God made our bodies with many parts, and he has put each part just where he wants it. 19 What a strange thing a body would be if it had only one part! 20 Yes, there are many parts, but only one body. 21 The eye can never say to the hand, “I don’t need you.” The head can’t say to the feet, “I don’t need you.”
TEAMWORK
Each part of our body has a function to perform. It WORKS together. We have a function within God’s plan. He calls us to work together with HIM, part of His team. Teamwork isn’t just for sports or the military, it is part of the normal Christian walk, we are teammates together in Christ and with Christ proclaiming the Gospel as we go through life.
